Have Your Say: What Was The Best New iOS App Of 2012?


So many to choose from ... but what floated your boat?
So many to choose from ... but what floated your boat?

It’s that time of year again, time to look back at a year of new apps and highlight the ones we liked the most.

So we’d like some help from you, gorgeous Cult of Mac readers – who are all looking particularly good today, might I add? We need to draw up a shortlist of candidates, apps that made a splash on your home screens during the last 12 months.

Which ones delighted you? Which ones entertained you? Which ones left you giggling like a little kid? What about the free apps you wished you could pay for? Or the paid-for apps that you thought were ridiculously cheap? Which were the apps you rushed to tell your friends about, because you were so excited?

Help us out – post your thoughts and suggestions in the comments. Next week we’ll round up your suggestions, mix in a few of our own, and run a poll in which you can vote and decide the winner.

Thanks folks! We’re looking forward to seeing your recommendations.

    This is an easy choice. Its a tie between the current version of The Weather Channel Max and the newly introduced Google Maps.

    Clear & Fantastical are absolutely wonderful. The recent Twitterific and Rdio updates have also made them deserve a spot in the running.
